What should I expect from therapy?
Why should I seek out help from you and not one of the many therapists in this community?
Although we live in a world of enormous pressures and challenges, I believe we have to find a way to stay positive and forward thinking. I apply my coaching and positive psychology skills throughout my psychotherapeutic work, and encourage my clients to look for “the light at the end of the tunnel.”
My clients know that I am very committed and accessible to them. They know that they receive the time and attention that is important to them, even between appointments. I return calls as soon as possible and will set up additional appointments in the case of emergency. I collaborate regularly with colleagues and medical personnel, so my clients are assured of comprehensive, coordinated care.
My professional and academic training were rigorous and thorough. I trained in New York, and hold degrees from Cornell and Columbia. I began my career working in four different psychiatric settings (Cornell, Mt. Sinai Hospital, Long Island Jewish-Hillside Hospital, and Fair Oaks Hospital), both inpatient and outpatient, so my formal training and supervision proved to be very extensive. I have been in private practice since 1980. I went for post-graduate training at the Ackerman Institute for Marital and Family Therapy in Manhattan and more recently trained at Mentor Coach (a program that teaches coaching
skills to experienced mental heath practitioners.)
How long does treatment last?
My payment policy is fee for service.
A portion of the cost of my services is reimbursable by most insurance plans, and I will provide you with a statement that you can submit to obtain out-of-network benefits. Oftentimes, clients get back 50 to 80% of their payment, after their deductible. Please note that some insurance plans require you to seek their approval before starting therapy (known as “pre-certification”) For specifics, please call your insurance company directly.
I know that this can be very confusing. Please feel free to discuss financial arrangements with me and I will be happy to assist you with this as best as I can.
